Arts University Bournemouth, Graduate Fashion Week

Since finishing university, I have revisited Bournemouth only twice - firstly for 1Xtra Live, then shortly after for my graduation ceremony. With virtually all my uni friends having packed up and left, there's not much reason for a return trip. I mean, it's not like I have a younger sibling studying at Bournemouth University. Oh, wait.

Thankfully, I can afford for Bournemouth to come to me - sadly not its beautiful sandy beaches (global warming isn't that fast), but the up-and-coming fashion designers from Arts University Bournemouth, who present their final year collections at Graduate Fashion Week. Theirs was the first catwalk show in this year's schedule, and I was delighted to have been allocated a front row seat.

Graduate collections included those by Harriet Neal, Lara Gunnarsdottir, Alice Polley, Naa Williams, Danielle Perry, Louise Boland, Sanna Olsson, Valinda Rai, Leah Turberville, Cristina Criaco, Olga Novikova, Anja Povey, Holly Jones, Jessica Russell, Georgia Walter, Grant Brown, James Andrew, Kai Leong and Poppy Russell.

Poppy, whose lead model took to the catwalk with infectious street dancing, saw her menswear designs make it to the Graduate Fashion Week Gala Awards Show as part of this year's top twenty-five collections. Fellow AUB student Charlie Carstairs was named winner of the Accessories Award.
